English Literary Renaissance invites article submissions of 8000 to 12000 words on race in non-dramatic Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century literature in English. We especially encourage submissions that forgo analysis of canonical work by Shakespeare and Spenser, and instead showcase other literary texts and authors of the period, along with new archival materials. While we have plans for a special issue that focuses on Sixteenth-Century literature to be published in 2024, we hope to add more than a single issue’s worth of material to our publication pipeline. We welcome a range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The deadline for authors who wish to be considered for the 2024 special issue is 1 August 2022.
NeMLA has extended the deadline for abstracts to Oct. 15, 2021. Additionally, this panel will be accepting participants who can only participate via online/Zoom and we will be livestreaming the panel to conference participants via the conference app. International participants are welcome. However, please note that all conference participants will still have to pay the full registration fee and NeMLA has said that all sessions of the conference may not be fully accessible to online participants.

Conference: Crossing the Border of Humanity: Cyborgs in Ethics, Law, and Art
December 14–15, 2021
Medical University of Łódź, Poland & University of Warwick, Coventry, UK
The idea of being a cyborg is as alluring as it is be repulsive (at least to some). Literary and pop-cultural visions of becoming a cyborg and becoming a nation of cyborgs have seductively taken hold of our imagination, resulting in a prevalent, yet simplistic, image of a one-laser-eyed being with a robotic limb. This unanimous picture ostensibly evident what a cyborg is and what (s)he/it is not. We are, after all, by no means something like a Borg!

THE ZOO OF THE IMAGINARY
According to Michel de Certeau, in a technocratic society as our own, religion is caged in the ‘zoo of the imaginary’, together with other genre-creatures, such as science fiction, romance, or the ‘witchcraft of ethnology’, as he calls it. For the next issue of Passage, we want to let these spiritual, imaginary animals out of the cage, and into the banal, crumbling, hyperconnected everyday reality we inhabit.
Dear colleagues, Please consider submitting a proposal for the following panel at the NeMLA 2022 Convention (Baltimore, MD, March 10-13):Italy between reality and myth.
The organizers of this seminar invite abstracts for American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) 2022
The goal of this panel is to provide a platform to locate the fast-evolving theoretical precepts in translation from a postcolonial and cultural studies perspective. Taking an in depth look at the possibilities and challenges posed by translation, we aim to demonstrate the ways in which ‘ethical’ translation in various possible senses can be integral to forming a resistance culture to counter the political environment in the metropole, which aims to suppress multilingual and multicultural realities in the US and beyond.
Introduction to Digital Humanities:Developing Individual Projects
Dates: November: 4,11, 18,25
Time: 17.00 (5 p.m.)
Amsterdam time (UTC +2)
Course Facilitator: Rada Varga, Ph.D
GIRES, the Global Institute for Research, Education and Scholarship is committed to offering the tools that support the endeavors of global scholarly community. Our new workshop offers the tools for scholars who wish to enter and explore the fascinating world of Digital Humanities (DH) under the guidance of expert Dr. Rada Varga.
Today, experiments about how humans think usually take place in a lab, allowing researchers to locate thought processes in the brain with unprecedented precision. However, writers have experimented with thinking for much longer. For instance, Virginia Woolf argued in her essay “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid" (1940) that a new form of (women's) writing can cause a shift in how British men think and bring about peace. Between the Acts (1941) demonstrates how tone, rhythm, and diction can produce different cognitive registers—Elizabethan, Enlightenment, and Victorian—thus connecting form and cognition.
CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTER PROPOSALS
We’re seeking chapter-length contributions to an edited volume on politics and the Western. The working title for this project is A Fistful of Politics: The Western and Political Thought.

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

a Broken System…
"Johnson and Pope: Agon or Admiration Society?" Timothy Erwin, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, email@example.com At the 2020 ASECS meeting in Toronto a speaker suggested that Samuel Johnson and Alexander Pope engaged in "a lifelong agon." The idea deserves sustained discussion. When the unknown Johnson published "London" (1738), he entered willingly or not into a competition with Pope, whose "One Thousand Seven Hundred and Thirty Eight: A Dialogue" appeared about the same time. Pope was impressed, saying of the anonymous author that his identity would soon be known.
Romantic Poets have always been viewed as Nature poets. The stereotype of nature, pastoral, or sceneries has been the trademark. But as literature students, we come across the point, is romantic poetry limited to nature, sky, river, and brooks?
The best part about this small question is the ambiguity of the answer. On the superficial level, romantic poetry and Victorian poetry are confined to nature poetry. But Blake and Wordsworth are not the torchbearers of romanticism. The credit goes to Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of poetry. Chaucer has written The Canterbury tales has elements of romanticism.
The Derrida Today Conference will focus on the ongoing value of either Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, to the political-ethical, cultural, artistic and public debates and philosophical futures that confront us. The conference will be broadly interdisciplinary and invites contributions from a range of academic, disciplinary and cultural contexts. We will accept papers and panel proposals from scholars, academics and postgraduates, on any aspect of Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, in relation to various topics as well as contemporary issues.

What does “authenticity” denote in the study literature? Is there a way of writing authentically, reading authentically, or is authenticity just the effect of certain kinds of literary tension or structure? This seminar will study the many ways of understanding the notion of authenticity in textual study. While the seminar aims to focus on the interplay between the fictional and the nonfictional in literatures of all periods, the panel would more than welcome papers dealing with other aspects of “authenticity” in artistic creation such as, but not limited to:
Historicity and factualness in literature
Memoir and witness accounts
Reader response and its authenticities (cognitive studies)
Podcasts have left the garage and entered the university. This seminar considers the ever-expanding place of podcasts and podcasting in humanities research, teaching, and scholarship. Are podcasts welcome alternatives to the gatekeeping of academic journals and exclusive conferences? Or is “start a podcast” the new “learn to code,” just another skill that humanities scholars must adopt to stay relevant in a shrinking field? Do podcasts encourage new forms of scholarship, knowledge, and collaboration? What are the intersections between podcasts and the fields of public humanities, digital humanities, and sound studies?
